I recently had a great chat with career coach Christie Mims about something we all want – a career that fills us with purpose and passion. For some, I know, living a life of passion seems out of reach. But Christie believes that with the right tools and mindset, anyone can get there.
Once a consultant in Washington DC, Christie realized that the mentoring and coaching aspects of her job were the things that motivated her each day. So she took a leap, researching and enrolling in a Coaching Certification program with the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching. Now Christie runs her own business, shares career wisdom with her inspiring Revolutionary Club, and is aiming to personally reach a million clients to help them realize their career dreams.
This upbeat conversation covers a lot of important ground, as Christie shares her own journey and drops some enlightening knowledge. I've long been wary of the adage, “Just follow your passion!” but Christie has developed an actual process for identifying you unique purpose! All of her advice is practical and immediately actionable – so you can get started planning your career goals, change, or trajectory right away.
Finally, Christie is super generous and shares two free gifts with you, Profit Boss®, including the keys to the kingdom: Her signature Find Your Passion process. Just like that. So join us and take advantage of Christie's wisdom!
